of distinction to president obama right now. as you can see, this is a live look here. all of this is happening at the president's residence in jerusalem. let's listen in for a bit. >> on occasions, when we were alone, you stood with us. so we were not alone. we were alone together. we shall never forget it. during your previous visit you asked me if i had any advice to offer. well, it's not my nature not to let questions go unanswered. so i suggested that while people say that the future belongs to the young, it is the present that really belongs to the young. leave the future to me. i have time. i think i was right. because the moment you came into office, you immediately had to face daunting and demanding challenges day in, day out. i prayed that you would meet them with wisdom and determination. without losing hope, without allowing others to lose hope. you know, the prayers were answered. after all, they came from jerusalem and they came to us as a great message. it is a tribute to leadership. to the strength of your character. to the principles that you have never surrendered to hopelessn
. it is a visit heavier on symbolism than on substance. president barack obama is in israel right now, where he has promised america's enduring support for the jewish state. he also stressed the need for peace. >> but obama is not expected to provide new initiatives or policy moves in the area of the middle east peace process, which is secondary to israeli leaders when compared to the possibility of a nuclear iran. president obama and prime minister netanyahu have given a press conference. we will talk to our jerusalem correspondent about that in a moment. >> but first, the israeli president said that president barack obama has a vision that can transform the middle east. the pair met earlier in jerusalem at the start of obama 's first visit to israel as u.s. president. >> the pair said they both thought the greatest danger in the region would be a nuclear- capable of man and that he trusted obama's policy to prevent that from happening. >> obama was greeted by children singing in hebrew, english, and arabic -- a heartwarming welcome for the u.s. president. but behind the smiles, there were ser

[laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right? [cheers and applause] and our worst fears about obama were confirmed when he appointed as secretary of defense former senator and man who just learned his dog died-- chuck hagel. [laughter] hagel has a history of troubling statements. he once said the jewy lobby intimidate dates a lot people and i'm not an israeli senator i'm a united states senator. clearly this man doesn't understand that when it comes to israel, there are certain things you can't say. for instance, implying that there are certain things you can't say. which there aren't. you can say anything you want about israel, which i would, if there was anyt

national secrets with israel. president obama joked the interruption made him feel right at home. but obama's whole trip raises a question. is the u.s.-israeli alliance stronger or weaker during his leadership? what do you think? weigh in or tweet us. thanks for watching abc news. next, overnight breaking news. check in with "good morning america." they're working while you're sleeping. we'll see you here tomorrow.
want to add to this, i think in a sense obama was right. and i think boehner is right. i think a lot of republicans go too far in this whole point. the immediacy of this crisis -- look, even the cbo says you've got ten years or so before the deficit starts going back up and so forth and so on. but i do -- i do think -- i do think it's an interesting theme. that's all i'm saying. >> i agree. we have to remember, the budget deficit was 10% of gdp in 2009. now it's 5. and going down to 2 or 3 and then it's going to start going up again. >> $800 billion now. >> that's all. and those pressures, by the way, coming from health care costs, not from a lot of the stuff they're talking about cutting the discretionary part of the budget. but on the corporate tax thing, i hate to introduce root canal again be, but if you want to get down to 25%, the white house said 28% and it's a goal that probably all of us would embrace, you're going to have to close a bunch of loopholes. if you want it to be at least revenue-neutral -- >> which the president has said he would have -- not the corporate, the pe
since he's been president obama. and every year right-wingers freak out because president obama fills out a bracket. john boehner retweeted the gop conference, can clutch with his brackets, late with his budgets. he linked his video for filling out a bracket. >> i think it's a disgrace and a joke that the ncaa didn't put us in the tournament. if you ask me it's a bunch of liberal socialism. you can laugh all you want, but it's the truth. and your party's partially responsible for it. >> i promise that was not a horse from the kentucky derby. we should point out ashley judd who's eyeing mitch mcconnell's seat is a big kept kept fan too. so chester may want to rethink his conspiracy theory. let's turn to mike wise for the washington post. mike, before we move on to the tournament, what's your reaction to the right wing freaking out over obama every year when he does his bracket. >> the time it took for senator boehner to actually put that tweet together, the time he could have been working on the sequestration problem. it's ridiculous. you know what i love about this president? and irre
. on that front, even as we speak right now, behind closed doors president obama is visiting with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas w. the conversation, of course, is really an opportunity for the president to listen. he did not come here with any new peace plan, no effort to relaunch the peace talks at this time. but i hopes that the conversation now will help him be in a better position to do so going forward. the entire visit is really designed on this day to for the president to reaffirm his commitment to israel in this region. he said in his own language, we have your back about iran. he said he will do whatever is necessary to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. he referred to those weapons, bill, as the world's worst weapons. >> peter, any behind the scenes kind of insider information that happened? anything interesting or even fun yesterday during the first day of the trip? >> reporter: yeah, you know already today there was interesting things that took place. we had a chance to see behind the scenes as the president was doing some cultural stops here in israel. in
. that are underlining that although they do have concerns, they are supporting him. >> all right, thank you very much. >> on day two of president barack obama's diplomatic tour to the middle east, he met with palestinian officials in the west bank to emphasize the importance of reaching an israeli-palestinian peace deal, but the difficulty of the mission was underscored by a rocket attack in southern israel by palestinian militants in gaza. >> thursday afternoon, he received a standing ovation from the israeli audience after proclaiming his support for an independent palestinian state alongside a jewish won. >> obama also made it clear that u.s. support for israel is not unconditional, saying to settlements are preventing peace. we have more from jerusalem. >> the main auditorium in jerusalem was packed. hundreds of israelis came to hear the u.s. president speak. obama step to the key message of his visit. >> i believe that peace is the only path to true security. the only way for israel to enter and thrive as a jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable pales
, a country living with the threat of a nuclear iran possibly. president obama said the right things. during his visit about making sure iran does not get a nuclear weapon. at least one israeli leader is convinced if push comes to shove and military action is needed, the u.s. will be right alongside israel. amid the talk of war, though, the president is also pushing for peace between israelis and palestinians. that effort take a different tone on a specific issue today. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and reports from jerusalem. >> president obama spent a second day in jerusalem showing he is mending fences with israeli leaders to get upclose look at the dead sea scrolls and later trying to go around the leaders to appeal to the young people of israel to talk up peace. >> look to a future in which jews and muslims and christians can all live in peace and greater prosperity in this holy land. >> while also holding out the threat of war. again, vowing that the u.s. will have israel's back. by threatening possible military hip hop action military action
wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't believe that this president really is willing to follow through on the use of force because they think that his head is still looking back at iraq. someone who spoke to him recently told me a few days ago that he has said about syria, words to the effect of "i know how i get in. tell me how i get out. i don't know how to get out." he is still thinking of what we got into unexpectedly in iraq, the unintended consequences of american action. it's a defining thing for him. chris: a sense of wisdom. let me ask you about this column. in terms of republican politics, and speak for that if you can, that they know that george w bush is basically identified completely with the iraq war. is the republican party that can speak for it, are they basically war averse now? >> i think they would hesitate to say, i'm a spokesperson for the republican party, but, yeah, i heard you say wariness.
that president obama got away from gitmo is through drones, right? it was his solution? >> i'm not listening to you. this story is not real. president obama has closed gitmo he. >> greg: really? >> this just in he promised when ran and got reelected gitmo is not even open. this is a lying story. not even true. ha, ha, ha. not even open. he close closed it like three s ago because he said he was going to. >> greg: i had no idea. >> he does what he says. >> greg: that is true, p.a.b. you said in the green room i was shocked you said gitmo should be replaced with a bottomless pit of hellfire with spikes at the bottom. you know that is impossible to do. you can't have a bottomless pit and something at the bottom of that. >> that is a good point. i have to redraft my plan. >> greg: thoughts? >> what troubled me the most about this is at the hearing they were stalking about $150 million and then he flipped and said something about and then there is the whole renovation and people caught on to it and said well, what is that? and then they had to admit well, that is another $50 million that we weren
. >> barack obama was right about the invasion of iraq. the vice president of the united states was wildly and tragically wrong. >> simply stated there is no doubt that saddam hussein now has weapons of mass destruction. >> dick cheney was a trained foreign policy expert. so was colin powell. >> indeed, the facts and iraq's behavior show that saddam hussein and his regime are concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction. >> the national debate over going to war in iraq was heavily lopsided in favor of war. in the united states senate, the war resolution passed with 77 votes, only 23 senators opposed it, including only one republican rhode island senator rink on chafee. >> what concerns me most is the pattern we see applied to iraq, that is abandoning of our alliances and willing to be preemptive without any real evidence of weapons of mass destruction. >> in the house of representatives the war resolution passed with 296 votes. 133 house members voted against it, including a congresswoman from san francisco who was working her way up the leadership ladder. >> let's
% as compared with 70% for president obama. >> right. and jeb bush's brother, president bush, got 45% of the hispanic vote. so we have a long road to go now. the gang of eight, they want to have a vote on this bill june/july. i'm hopeful, also, the house can pass a bill so we can have comprehensive immigration reform. jon: are the two bodies likely to see eye to eye? i mean, it's one thing to get republicans and democrats together in the senate which is a more collegial body -- >> yes. jon: the house a little more fractious. >> well, senators mccain and graham went over to the house and met with some republicans, and flake said they're open. i'm not going to say exactly what they said, but the bottom line is this: if the senate can prove this is not a blanket amnesty bill, then they can bring some people from the house onboard. jon: so you're fairly confident this is going to get done. the senators say they are very close on this immigration legislation. >> i'm confident that it will get done if republicans can come together. we need to stop being public and, you know, again, it's gr
weapons certainly doing the job without that. ivan watson in amman, jordan. >> right now president obama should be meeting with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. this is the president's first trip during his second term to israel. it's significant for several reasons. the president is trying to reassure israel about strategy of keeping iran from developing a nuclear weapon for one. >> exactly. and the u.s. and israel of course discussing how to deal with the civil war happening across the border in syria. the president also wants to see whether israel and the palestinians are prepared to perhaps restart peace talks. not many people hopeful on that. >> as we mentioned john king is covering this from the perspective jerusalem. john, start with syria and the claims of chemical weapons. does this push syria to the top of the agenda now for the president and for mr. netanyahu? >> prime minister netanyahu and the president are first and foremost worried about iran. no question syria will get more of the conversation. about 135 miles, fred and michael, where i'm standing here in jerusalem to d

? >> well, that's right. but think about what obama's the attitude has been towards the middle east in the first term of the presidency. the libyan intervention, he brought up the rear after the europeans went in first. we have syria now completely blowing apart and the president has kept the syrian rebels at arm's length for nearly two years and he shows up and tells the israelis that they should take a risk for peace in the middle east when he's been-- the president holding the region at arm's length. >> paul: you're saying a credibility problem he's going to have with the israelis. >> absolutely. >> paul: they've seen four years and not going to buy it. on the other hand, he tried to appeal, bret, to the israelis self-interest, with the demographic, you have to come to an agreement if you want to survive in the region. >> that's right, in theory, that's right. in 20, 25 years israel will face a demographic problem. in the here and now egypt is under the control of the muslim brotherhood. you don't know what's going to happen in syria or in lebanon. the future of jordan where the
